Priyanka Murthy, CEO of Access79, could teach a masterclass on combining passion and purpose.
She's an award-winning jewelry designer whose creations grace the ear lobes and necks of A-list Hollywood stars.
Think J-Lo, Lupita Nyong'o, Kerry Washington, Jennifer Lawrence, Clare Danes and Julia Roberts.
But here's the really cool part. Priyanka is now combining her passion for stunning jewelry design with her purpose of making a positive impact on our world.
Priyanka's husband is a physician, which means her family has a front-row seat to the front-line workers who work tirelessly to care for their patients.
Based in Florida, they also have a front-row seat to the deep, acrimonious divisions over the vaccine and masks.
What is their strategy for dealing with those divisions, both personally and professionally?
How can a Fulbright Scholar and attorney-turned CEO of a fine jewelry company combine all of her passions into a purpose-filled life?
And why is it so important for this millennial to leave a lasting legacy?
Our conversation covers all of this and more, including how we first met, and why she will always be family to me.
